Today, August 16, is National Rum Day. As we’ve always been a fan of the Brugal Extra Dry since their launch in 2012, we’re sharing some new Brugal cocktail recipes below.
Brugal Extra Dry is a blend of rums aged 2-5 years exclusively in White American Oak Casks. (former American Whisky, medium toasted). It is aged the same amount of time as Brugal Añejo.
It is then triple-filtered to enhance smoothness and remove the color.
Directions: Shake and strain, server in a coupe. Garnish with a lime wheel.
